What are the Dos and Donts of Home Sewage Systems?
Sewage treatment facilities filter and treat wastewater/sewage, converting it to a cleaner 'effluent' that can be returned to nature in a safer, more environmentally friendly state. These aid in restoring groundwater balance, prevention of diseases, and the reduction of environmental degradation and pollution.
The purified water in housing societies can be utilised for non-potable applications like gardening, car washing, building, irrigation, and toilet flushing.
Things that are strictly forbidden in home/residential sewage treatment plants
1: Disposable diapers, baby wipes, disposable sanitary wipes, plastic, sanitary napkins, scouring pads, contraceptives, mop strings, towels, lint, rags, etc.
2: Paints, thinners, chemicals, grease, solvents, and disinfectants will build up in your wastewater treatment plants, causing the restriction valve to malfunction. All of these items kill your plant's cleaning bacteria.
3: Backwashing the water softener drainage ditches, storm sewers, and downspout drainage systems are all accessible via this route.
4: Drain cleansers and toilet bowl freshener tabs will destroy the bacteria in your sewage system that are busily cleaning it.

Maintenance of your STP
STPs with a low budget will need to be emptied and monitored frequently, but even a good one will need to be de-sludged and maintained at least once a year. To balance the internal and external pressures, it should be immediately replenished with water after desludging. Rainwater should never be allowed to enter the STP. It has the potential to wash microorganisms out and cause floods.
